Sunflower oil is extremely low in saturated fats and contains almost no trans fats (8.41% and 0.03% respectively). It is also high in oleic acid: its fat content is over 80% monounsaturated (its only close competitor is olive oil, at approximately 70%). monounsaturated fats are heart-healthy by definition, supporting increased “good HDL cholesterol, and lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol in the body. Driftless Organics’ sunflower oil is high in vitamin E, making it a powerful antioxidant, and high in omega 9 fatty acids that can help eliminate plaque build-up in the arteries.
